Kasauli is a hilly cantonment town is a quick drive away from Chandigarh and Delhi, making it an ideal spot for a quick weekend getaway.
Kasauli may not have any crazy attractions or activities to offer, but what it lacks in flashy sights it more than makes up for in beautiful Victorian villas and peaceful surroundings. This quaint village is a hiker’s paradise, with nature trails and stunning viewpoints that will take your breath away.
And if you’re a history buff, you’ll love exploring the lavish Victorian buildings that were built by the Britishers who once called Kasauli home. But it’s not just history that Kasauli has to offer – it’s also a pilgrimage place, with Lord Hanuman believed to have rested here during his search for medicines for Lord Lakshaman. Even famous writer Ruskin Bond was born here, so you know it’s got to be a good spot for inspiration.
But let’s not forget about the hiking trails! Kasauli is nestled in the lower edges of the Himalayas, which means you’ll be surrounded by gorgeous woody forests of pines, herbs, and cedars. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot some snow-capped mountains in the distance.
All in all, Kasauli is a charming and peaceful hill station that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
